Welcome to the sport of kitesurfing! Ever wandered down to the beach and watched the antics of the kitesurfers speeding along on the water, taking those huge leaps – seemingly defying gravity? Well, your chance is here! This fantastic introductory course will give you the all-important basics you will need to know.
Day 1 is a land based training day. You will learn how to set up the kite equipment correctly and practise those all too important safety checks. You will also learn how to launch and land your kite safely, understanding the wind window – the area of the sky where the kite is able to fly. On Day 2 you will progress on to more advanced kite flying skills. You will also move into the water where you will learn to body drag upwind and downwind as well as a power stroke body drag! This day is all about making you feel confident flying a big kite
